BluePhoenix Solutions releases Logic Miner CE software for COBOL modernization
Oct 09, 2013 (MarketLine via COMTEX) --
BluePhoenix Solutions, which develops and markets enterprise legacy information technology solutions, has announced the release of Logic Miner Cloud Edition, or CE, software for COBOL modernization, available via the Amazon Web Services, or AWS, Marketplace.
Logic Miner CE can be used to assess legacy systems and plan their transition to a modern environment. Specifically, customers using Logic Miner can: Reduce risk of legacy transition and build a business case for COBOL modernization by identifying technical inventory, business logic and risk factors; Reduce maintenance costs of current environment by mapping out code and identifying "dead code" and non-functional pairings; Visually represent legacy environments with easy-to-understand diagrams and charts; Identify areas in code and processes that enable better preparation for regulatory compliance such as Sarbanes-Oxley; Clearly define migration path from mainframe to private platforms, vendor systems or the AWS cloud.
The analysis and data delivered by Logic Miner contributed to successful projects with customers like Northrop Grumman, Wells Fargo and University of Miami.
"Logic Miner saves customers months of time doing system analysis and documentation," says Rick Oppedisano, BluePhoenix vice president of Product R&D and Marketing. "This is a complete analysis of the legacy system, from applications to databases. Customers get open, highly structured representations of legacy artifacts and business logic. Having this kind of visibility is critical for any successful COBOL modernization project."
With Logic Miner, customers can evaluate legacy COBOL applications and embedded languages, databases (including SQL, VSAM and DL/I), 3rd party calls and JCL interaction.
"2014 is shaping up to be a big year in legacy COBOL modernization," says Oppedisano. "Customers are looking for this kind of data to properly understand the risk. They can use Logic Miner to plot their course from legacy systems to the cloud. We chose the AWS Marketplace because AWS is becoming a big part of the enterprise COBOL modernization dialogue."
"The pay-per-use model of AWS is an ideal match for organizations looking to optimize costs and flexibility," said Sajai Krishnan, General Manager, AWS Marketplace. "We welcome BluePhoenix to the AWS Marketplace and are excited to work closely together with them to offer our customers more choice and flexibility. As customers look to modernize their mainframe applications, BluePhoenix's solution in AWS Marketplace is available for use with just 1-click."
"Beyond the obvious benefits of having applications and data on open systems, customers can leverage AWS to get past the 'peak usage' billing model of the mainframe and experience exponential savings," adds Oppedisano. "This was a natural way to extend our partnership with AWS, innovate and maintain leadership in our space."
With BluePhoenix's ATLAS Platform, customers can: Reduce MIPS and Overall Mainframe Cost By 50%; Unlock Legacy Data, Get the Big Picture; Modernize legacy COBOL, Natural, CA COOL:GEN apps and legacy ADABAS, VSAM and IDMS databases; Use Maintainable Code.
